Jaguars’ Day 2 Option No. 3 – Skyy Moore, Western Michigan

If there’s one player that made the most of his performance at the combine, it was Skyy Moore, who skyrocketed up the draft boards afterward. Some have him going in the second round now, and for the Jaguars, it would be well worth the investment.

Moore impressed in Indianapolis with a 4.41 time in his 40-yard dash, but he also made waves with his measurables, in particular, his hands. They were measured at 10 and a quarter inch along with 31-inch arms. He’s a lanky wideout with huge hands, standing just shy of six feet at five-foot-ten. Much like some of his counterparts, people began taking notice of Moore in 2021 when he scored 10 touchdowns and was ranked number one in the Mid-American Conference with his aforementioned touchdown total.

Moore’s speed, explosiveness, and ability to stretch the field are just some of his strengths. If you can get him the ball in the open field, he’s dangerous and will make defenses pay with his acceleration and big-play ability. The Jaguars would have a true deep vertical threat in Moore, who can slice through just about any defensive scheme he sees, and on top of that, he’s also difficult to bring down. This is a no-brainer for Baalke if Moore is available in the third round.
